Serena Williams challenges two tennis players to a match at San Francisco's Dolores Park

Tennis icon Serena Williams may be coming to a tennis court near you. At least that's what she told her Snapchat followers after surprising two tennis players during their match in San Francisco's Dolores Park on Sunday night.

While out walking her dog Chip with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Williams stopped to watch them finish their match. “Can I play the winner?” she asked the two stunned men as she approached the court.

With only her black boots to wear, she jokingly warned her Snapchat viewers to not try this at home.

As her dog ran around court with a tennis ball in his mouth, Williams, the No. 1 player in the world played a quick game.
